Castlegar Twin Rivers Elementary School Grade 4/5 Class

This class has been raising funds for Market Children in Tegucigalpa for over 10 years.  Their teacher, Curt Kutschera, uses the exercise to raise kids awareness about the importance of education, Central America and charitable giving.

In 2018 the class raised over $1,000!  

 

Ron & Elaine Ross, founders of  H.E.L.P. Honduras, are seen here with the 2016 class.
